Scotland recorded their first win of the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier tournament with a seven-run victory over Papua New Guinea.

But successive defeats by South Africa and Bangladesh have left the Scots with an uphill task to progress to the Super Six stage in Colombo.

They would need to beat Pakistan on Monday by a big enough margin to overtake Bangladesh on net run rate.
